Don’t let others take a peek at your information

Xshell supports various security features such as SSH1/SSH2 protocols, password, and DSA/RSA public key user authentication methods, and encrypts all traffic with various encryption algorithms. It is essential to keep your data safe with the built-in Xshell security feature, because the traditional connection protocols such as TELNET and Rlogin can leave your network traffic vulnerable to anyone with network knowledge. Xshell will help you protect your data from hackers.

The best terminal emulator user experience

Terminal users often have to work with multiple terminal sessions at any given time and need to compare the terminal output with many different hosts or send same set of commands to them. Xshell is designed to resolve these issues. With wide range of user convenient features such as tabbed environment, split window, synchronized key input and session management, you can save time and get more work done faster.

Multiple languages in a single screen? Xshell is ready when you are

Xshell is the first of its kind that has UTF-8 based terminal. With Xshell, multiple languages can be displayed on a single screen and there is no need to switch between different language encodings. As more businesses are moving towards providing their services, databases and applications in UTF-8 format, there is an increasing demand for a terminal emulator that supports UTF-8 encoding. Xshell can help you handle the multiple language environment.
